"The Global Information Infrastructure is enabling telehealth applications which are creating opportunities for improving health at the local, national, and international levels. In addition to addressing present day health problems, the establishment of the Health Information Infrastructure on a global scale greatly increases the likelihood that the macro health challenges of the early to mid 21 Century -- such as overpopulation, environmental degradation, and social crisis -- will be addressed early on, while providing opportunities for bettering individual and community health and human prosperity globally."
"There is a growing need for a "New Marshall Plan" that is as bold and unprecedented today as the original Marshall Plan was in its time. It must learn from the lessons of history, yet be willing and able to apply entirely new principles and approaches to be optimally effective. It must be uniquely attuned to present and emerging conditions, in order to address and resolve key impending challenges to health and human prosperity that, over the next few decades, threaten the well-being of billions of people and the viability of the ecosystems they live in."
"Health knowledge and trained human resources are key to societal and community health and prosperity, as well as for the reliable functioning and outcomes of a health care institution. The Global Health Initiatives, Inc.'s Virtual Health Science program enables societies and communities to benefit from health knowledge that was previously inaccessible to them. Global Health Initiatives is forming centers for excellence in health informatics to help facilitate the development of health information infrastructure and the training of essential health-oriented human resources."
Global Health in the Information
Scope and Purpose
Palestinians have many health problems, some relatively unique to its location, circumstances, and populations, that can be dramatically improved by the provision of telehealth applications. In general, telehealth applications fall into eight elements of comprehensive health information systems:
The initial GreenStar health demonstration will feature personal health information, clinical information, and healthy communities information. The health components of GreenStar will demonstrate how renewable energy-based telehealth services can catalyze a step forward for the health of the Palestinian people.
